AWARD-winning British songwriter Rory Graham, better known as Rag’n’Bone Man, is set to perform at a castle over the Herefordshire border in Shropshire this summer.

The singer will be appearing at Ludlow Castle in Ludlow on July 20.

The internationally renowned star began his rise to fame in 2016 with the release of his debut single ‘Human’ which showcased a characteristic blend of traditional blues and hip hop and introduced fans worldwide to his powerfully deep baritone voice.

In 2017, Rag’n’Bone Man cemented his success with fans and critics alike following the record-breaking release of his 4x platinum number one debut album of the same name ‘Human’ which became the decade's fastest-selling debut album by a British male artist, landing a plethora of international accolades, and a third BRIT award, with the title track in 2018.

Following the release of ‘Human’, Rag’n’Bone Man has continued to grow and sell out tours around the globe, collaborating with international artists including Gorillaz, Calvin Harris and most recently with Pink, who joined him on the stunning single ‘Anywhere Away From Here’ from his latest album ‘Life By Misadventure’.

Released in May 2021, the album rocketed straight to the top of the UK album charts, earning him a second UK number one album and spending seven weeks in the top 10.


Ludlow Castle is the perfect location to catch what will be a unique and awe-inspiring event, with today marking the third announcement of a series of shows to take place within the castle walls in summer 2023.

Ludlow castle's general manager Gemma England said: “We are thrilled to have Rag’n’Bone Man join the line-up of Within the Walls Festival here at Ludlow Castle. We can already imagine that baritone voice performing “Human” in this amazing setting. With another amazing act yet to be announced too, what a line we have coming to Ludlow this summer!”
